Anderson Silva tried to save the victims of UFC 151, but he made the call a few hours too late

Anderson Silva tried to save the victims of UFC 151, but he made the call a few hours too late

The scene probably played out like something from Expendables 3: as Dana White announces that UFC 151 is canceled, Ed Soares bursts through the door in slow motion screaming ‘noooooo’ as he dives towards his cellphone. That’s how close we were to the Hypothetical and one-time thought improbable match up of Bones Jones and Anderson Silva. According to MMA Fighting (who’s been scooping everyone left and right tonight,) Dana White told them that Ed Soares called him a few hours after the event was canceled (seemingly unbeknownst to Anderson) offering to fight another light heavyweight fighter (not Bones) to help save the show. The Spider admitted he was out of shape but he was down to go on 8 days notice… Or three days if you look at it like Greg Jackson.

That right there is the definition of rawesome baller GOAT. Anderson Silva understood the victims of UFC 151 needed saving.

But it was too late, and although Dana appreciated the thought, nothing could be done. It was all over, and now here we are; lonely and tired, writing about a vaporfight in our Grandma’s basement. Damn.
